The realization that New York state bar association has launched an online portal, https://nysbalris.legal.io, reminded me of a journey I traveled some few years ago when looking for a good lawyer. Finding an experienced legal advisor has never been easy. The internet has become a convenient tool indeed to use to get the best of services.
The portal goes a long way to help those looking for competent legal services around the clock. It is notable that many seek this service during times of stress. The hour can come knocking like the proverbial thief who comes unexpectedly. Individuals will neither have to sleep over their problems nor have to wake their friends the following morning with telephone calls enquiring of where to get a well-experienced attorney like I had to do before I was referred to Jeremy Goldstein.
The other advantage I established was the fact that confidentiality has not been eroded in this portal. It is unimaginable getting an attorney to help you in a certain conflict, and everything you exchange is accessed by the wrong people.
The association partnered with one of the best technological platform, Legal.io, a renowned referrer of legal services. The referral service by the bar has been around for some decades and therefore integrating it into the digital platform was a long called for dispensation. All an individual has to do is log into the portal, describe their issues and current location. The association staffs on line then review and match the raised concerns with a competent lawyer in the individual neighborhood. This service is free, but consultancy, as usual, is charged 35 $, exclusive of matters regarding military and veteran, employment issues, and workers compensation. Personal injuries, as well as social security issues, are also exempted from such charges.
Back then, to find Jeremy Goldstein, I had to ask a friend who had benefited from his services. He was previously a partner at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz before he initially founded his firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associate LLC.
Mr. Jeremy Goldstein was a match to my expectation and served my purpose. His experience in advising on corporate governance, leadership, and on issues regarding compensation is top notch. A side from his practice, Mr. Goldstein is also involved in charity works, especially with him being on the council of Make-A-Wish Foundation.
